Targetted Synagogue Hits Back at All Bigotry

31/12/2019

South Hampstead synagogue in London has issued a statement condemning all forms of bigotry, inclduing homophobia, after several London institutions used by the capital's vibrant Jewish community were daubed with anti-semitic graffiti. The Guardian newspaper takes up the story, and informs that the Synagogue said  “Social media is polluted with xenophobia, Islamophobia, homophobia, misogyny, racism and antisemitism. Sadly, these things are connected. This is a time for people of all backgrounds – of all faiths and of none – to stand united and show our determination that we do not tolerate prejudice, hate and division – on our streets or online.” Some of the anti-semitic vandalism seems to come from conspiracy theorists who believe that Jews were secretly responsible for the September eleventh attacks on the World Trade Centre in 2001. Such tropes have been peddled for some years on obscuritant internet websites, and have infected parts of the far right wing and the far left wing. Although there are groups that claim to represent LGBTQ anti-semites, such organisations have little wider support in the community and are politically ostracised to the nether reaches of the internet.
